Do You Want a Miracle? Stretch for It. (Ep 196)

September 9, 2021

It's simple. There’s a way things work. It’s always true in the natural. And in the supernatural too. As we diligently explore the Gospels in the New Testament with openness, we will realize there’s a way that things work when we want to experience something extraordinary. There is a simultaneous faith movement on our part with the corresponding activity of Jesus.

Leverage Your Trials to Advance — Frank Viola (Ep 195)

Leverage Your Trials to Advance — Frank Viola (Ep 195)

August 25, 2021

Trials are times of testing and pressure. Everyone experiences them. For the Christ-follower, trials are a unique opportunity to use Kingdom leverage. If we process well with the Lord, God can gain what he's looking for ... and we can gain new territory in our life and expression of our calling. Amazingly, James writes that we can live joyfully through our trials because of the advantageous outcomes.

Earth Governs Heaven?– Page One Series, Part 3 (Ep 185)

May 27, 2021

The great 20th century Chinese Bible teacher, Watchman Nee, said that 'earth governs heaven.' Could he be right? Jesus said he gave us the 'keys of the Kingdom of heaven' to bind and to loose. What if there is a clear connection between our move and heaven's move? Part 3 of the Page One series.

Is Progressivism a Hellish Counterfeit to the Real Future? (Jesus Smart Ep 167)

Is Progressivism a Hellish Counterfeit to the Real Future? (Jesus Smart Ep 167)

January 28, 2021

There's nothing more priceless than the truth ... and freedom is downstream from truth. Look around -- progressivism is all the rage today. And it's not just political. It's leaking into parts of the Church too. What starts gradually as soft totalitarianism can evolve into terrifying tyranny. True justice is beautiful. But is Progressivism a delusion? Even more, is it a hellish counterfeit to the real future that Jesus is bringing?

Heaven’s Secret Sauce: The Image of God In the Earth, Part 2 — Bruce Colbert (Ep 160)

December 3, 2020

We can cultivate all things (think Eden!), releasing hidden potential all around us. Capture Part 2 of my coffee-shop dialogue with Bruce Colbert. Are we willing to discover our real life in Christ's Kingdom Enterprise? And let's reconceive something -- Ekklesia (the Church) is for societal good. Not a "Churchianity." It's all wrapped up in the image of God in us! (Listen to Ep 158 for Part 1 of our dialogue.)

Is the Micro Ekklesia the Real Mega? (Ep 149)

Is the Micro Ekklesia the Real Mega? (Ep 149)

September 9, 2020

Is the Holy Spirit breathing on a Kingdom trendline today ... the Micro Ekklesia? Could Jesus be recovering something original and radical? Is an ancient-futurist expression of a "city on a hill" emerging that moves the needle in society and culture?
